Cleaning Glutenous Countertops?

4 posts in this topic

I've been looking online on how to TRY and keep a gluten-free kitchen when you are the only 1 of 5 not eating gluten. One question I can't find the answer to...how do you wipe your countertops off? In the past I've always used a dish rag for all counter wiping...and I have a dish towel for drying hands. I realized recently this won't work anymore. So, what do you usee to wipe down your countertops - I feel as though I'm constantly in the kitchen (3 kids) and am always wiping down counterstops. Do I use disposable wipes? Paper towels? So much for my environmental and frugal living if that's the case! :)

gluten hids everywhere & it can become a problem with double dipping in jars & such. We have re-trained everyone in our house & visitors (relatives). I scrub my counters weekly with soft scrub, then I use clorox wipes, then I paper towel dry.Just to santize can't say it removes gluten! Wipes are my best friend!

The main thing is I should buy out Bounty Paper Towels! The whole factory~~~ Instead of laying food on the counter we all faithfully place our food gluten-free or not on separate paper towels to catch crumbs. discard after one use...no food is permitted on the counters & oddly enough it doesn't happen!!! No one cares to have the cook sick!

After wiping down our granite counter, I spray with a 1:1 dilution of bleach and water, and let it sit for 10 minutes to denature/oxidize any gluten my kids may have left behind. Wipe down, then spray with a sodium thiosulfate solution to neutralize the bleach, rinse and wipe down again.

Some friends think I'm nuts, but I'm able to use the counter without getting sick, in my kitchen where everyone else still eats gluten. ;)

Wow I could have written this myself!! I am the only 1 of 5 currently eating gluten free too! And I feel like all I do all day long is wipe the counters down! (3 kids here too!) So far I have been using a dishrag, followed by a sponge I have marked Gluten FREE, and then lysol wipes. I also change the dishrag out several times a day, and the dishtowel I dry my hands off, and I'm always warning everyone not to touch my dish towel!! LOL I'm trying to get all the gluten containing items out of the house with the exception of dh's bread for sandwiches, and some crackers. I plan to make everything else gluten free so I don't have to worry about it any more. I dont think they will complain, and I doubt they will even notice when I start using other things to cook with. I will probably still make them regular pasta just because it would be very expensive to feed all 5 of us gluten-free pasta.

    • Yeah I have 2 stationary pedal bikes. I use one on the desk sometimes while watching a show and work out my arms. I keep one under the desk and pedal on it for hours a day, really helps with my restless leg issues and stress (just gotta keep moving or I start feeling like a panic attack is coming on trapped by life like a rat in a cage. If you need to know were to find the ground cocoa nibs look up crio bru, they sell it as a coffee replacement for $23 for 1.5lbs they have different origin and different roast levels so you can get different flavored cocoa nibs I get several and mix them up.
    • Yeah the histamine thing hit home a bit for me, as it mentioned everyone has their upper limits on it...explains why green canned fresh tomatoes fine...overly ripe sweet ones....instant puking, and why I have to really limit anything the citric acid, lemon, lime, garlic, onion, etc to very small amounts. Sorta funny how that works. like everything has a invisible number and if they add up to above my limit I am puking Makes eating annoying sometimes lol.  OH bit of a thought, I RARELY make almond milk cause it leaves a almond paste behind that I only have one use for and if sales at the bakery are bad I am better off just buying the stuff at the store and drinking in moderation. ANYWAY I use the almond paste mixed with coconut flour, left over almond butter batches, xylitol, apple sauce, and a tsp of a extract of choice to make the almond butter mini muffins for my bakery. They are a bit of a product of recycled foods lol. Taste great, super moist, grain free, mostly sugar free, and I can eat them no problems...they also freeze for months.   Love making them with our pirate butter (butter rum), Cheese cake butter (dairy free cheese cake extract in the almond butter) or any of the others for that matter.  
    • Did you get any of your vitamin and mineral levels checked for deficiencies?  You don't have to be Celiac to develop deficiencies.   Peripheral neuropathy may be caused by deficiencies of B12, copper, vitamin E, B6, B1 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4208100/ Not dreaming can be caused by B6 deficiency. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11883552 Tachycardia may be caused by deficiencies of B1, B12, vitamin C http://www.livestrong.com/article/503879-vitamin-deficiencies-racing-heart/ Ehlers Danlos can be helped by calcium, magnesium, vitamin C, and others https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15607555 And that funky color of your colon, melanomas coli, vitamin E deficiency https://www.researchgate.net/publication/22087649_Ceroid_enteropathy_and_vitamin_E_deficiency IMHO, doctors would rather treat the symptoms than cure the real problems. Hope this helps.

    • Absolutely nothing to apologise for Awol. I'm sorry for getting on my sugar hobby horse. In any case I'm a dreadful hypocrite, cutting out fruit juice but still indulging cravings for gluten-free cheesecakes and the like I wish I had some advice for you. Bone broth helped me, I think it can help leaky gut, maybe worth a try?  Dr Fasano's diet could be another option?
